Costas Is The Man!!!

This past weekend, the volleyball Bows beat up on UCLA, earning their first 2 match series sweep of the Bruins in 14 years. And rest assured, you beat the marquee program in college volleyball, you're going to get some national attention.

Today, the spotlight is shining bright on UH outside hitter, Costas Theocharidis. For the second time this season, he is the national player of the week, as named by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

Against UCLA, Theocharidis made good on 43 kills, 29 on Friday, 14 more on Saturday. While posting a .355 hitting percentage.

If the numbers throw you off, here's the bottom line. Two years ago, Costas was the AVCA newcomer of the year. Last year, he was national player of the year. And now, for the second time this season, he is national player of the week. a pretty good volleyball player.

This week he'll lead the guys in green into their final regular season series. The Bows taking on BYU. A two match series, the first of which is headed your way on Friday. You can catch both of them, live on K5 the home team.
